REDDING, Calif. - A motorcycle driver is dead after a head-on crash with a car in Redding Sunday night. 

Police responded to a call about a crash at the intersection of Eureka Way and Sunset Drive just before 7 p.m. On scene, officers determined that a 2007 Audi was involved in a head-on crash with a 2016 Yamaha motorcycle. 

Police say the motorcyclist died in that crash. The driver of the Audi was uninjured. The driver of the Audi was wearing a seatbelt, and the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.
